Fiction booklist for cozy reading weekends

It is getting chillier here in Northern Ontario and the pace is sliding into that Autumn vibe which is so much slower than Back-To-School September.  I’m settling into my cold weather routine of cozy sweaters, warm tea and good books. 

I am always looking for my next favourite read, and the bebo mia team has some super-readers so I thought we could share some of the books we’ve read recently and highly recommend them to help your search for your next favourite read!

We have made it extra easy to click and buy right from the list so that you will have more time to get to reading! 

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now? Get the tissues out because you’ll need them with this book! It is sad and charming and beautiful. 

The Power by Naomi Alderman

The Power– In The Power, the world is a recognizable place: there’s a rich Nigerian boy who lounges around the family pool; a foster kid whose religious parents hide their true nature; an ambitious American politician; a tough London girl from a tricky family. But then a vital new force takes root and flourishes, causing their lives to converge with devastating effect. Teenage girls now have immense physical power: they can cause agonizing pain and even death. And, with this small twist of nature, the world drastically resets. We loved that it highlighted that we would need to re-imagine tools of oppression and power to actually change the world!

The Change by Kirsten Miller

The Change In the Long Island oceanfront community of Mattauk, three different women discover that midlife changes bring a whole new type of empowerment… We could not put this down! It is ass-kicking, murder, suspense and feminist vigilante that focuses on how much MORE powerful women get with age. What else does a book need?

The School for Good Mothers by Jessamine Chan

The School for Good Mothers – In this taut and explosive debut novel, one lapse in judgement lands a young mother in a government reform program where custody of her child hangs in the balance. This was a real page-turner and essentially looks at Family Services with the same lens as the Handmaids Tale.

Darling Girl by Liz Michalski

Darling GirlLife is looking up for Holly Darling, granddaughter of Wendy—yes, that Wendy. She’s running a successful skincare company; her son, Jack, is happy and healthy; and the tragedy of her past is well behind her . . . until she gets a call that her daughter, Eden, who has been in a coma for nearly a decade, has gone missing from the estate where she’s been long tucked away. And, worst of all, Holly knows who must be responsible: Peter Pan, who is not only very real, but more dangerous than anyone could imagine.
